Which version of bittorrent are you using? Looking at the code, it looks
to me that the update-checking code is only enabled for Windows and OSX
unless the DEBUG flag is set.
I haven't looked at the code but it is definitely coming up with an update
notification. I'm using bittorrent-4.2.1-1.fc5 and it reports that 4.2.2
I now share the view that the new version check should be disabled.
However, I've so far been unable to provoke the client into telling me
about a new version, even though I've got an old one installed, so it's
difficult to test any patch I make (which will certainly need testing
since I'm not a python programmer).
If you remove or rename your ~/.bittorrent directory, the notification
should pop up the next time you start the client.
